Fields of Blue Flowers in Japan

In the Hitashi Seaside Park in Japan, infinite fields of nemophilas roll out like carpets of flowers on 190 hectares. We have gathered the best photos of this insolite place which appeals the tourists. Photographers must retouch their photos to erase the presence of people in the fields.

So to recap:

  • Madame Kali is going to be the Big Bad of Season 2, and it sounds like both she and Ferdinand Lyle will become regulars. They played the cut scene between them from the finale which apparently hints about the lengths some women will go for beauty and youth (Madame Bathory anyone?). She also recites the following poem: "What games we’ll have, Ms. Ives and I. Where one will live and one will die." Kali then goes on to tell him "Soon we shall unleash glorious Horace," suggesting we’ll also be delving even further into Egyptian mythology next year. 
  • The Dracula story is far from over, with another character from that world being brought into the fold in S2. 
  • John confirmed that Victor and Dorian are definitely going to meet but didn’t shed any light as to why and how.
  • The writers want to do the Island of Dr. Moreau at some point in the show (ASDFGHJKLA).
  • Ethan will be getting a flashback episode either in Season 2 or 3. John revealed that his father was a ‘titan of industry’ and a ‘monstrous man’, suggesting he hurt Ethan somehow as a child. He still seems undecided as to what the origin of Ethan’s lycanthropy will be though.
  • We will learn more about Malcolm and Sembene but not necessarily get the full backstory any time soon. 
  • Killing off Van Helsing was John’s way of letting the fans know he’s not obligating himself to recreate the original stories.
  • The ultimate question underlying the show is “Who is Vanessa Ives?” Next season will begin answering whether she invited the demon in or if she’s really a victim. According to John the truth is somewhere in between. 
  • They will be getting deeply into theology next year. Despite what he told Victor, Ethan actually does believe in God (duh). 
  • In the second season, The Creature is forced to choose a new moniker and he picks the name of a dead poet (not sure yet if this means we won’t be calling him ‘Caliban’ anymore or what). Logan denies that he was intentionally referencing “Phantom of the Opera” with the way the character evolved.
  • John emphasized that sex isn’t a bad thing in his world and denies that the lesson of Vanessa’s story is one of negativity towards female sexuality. He also says he wants to deal with all forms of sexual expression on the show and, rather than peg any character into a set orientation, maintains that he feels human beings ‘behave in the moment in ways that are true to them’.
  • John’s still exploring different ways to reveal or not reveal Brona’s identiy as the Bride to Ethan in S2. He definitely plans to focus on the Ethan/Vanessa connection a lot more though. 
  • The cast starts shooting again in September (which can’t come soon enough).

VICTORIAN MOURNING JEWELRY 

During the Victorian era, it was common to wear “mourning jewelry”. This jewelry typically included hair from deceased loved one.

The deceased loved one’s hair would be carefully arranged within the brooch, often creating intricate pictures or designs.

Hair was considered to be an ideal keepsake, since it does not break down over time.

↳ Hypnos and Thanatos

Hypnos (Ὕπνος) and Thanatos (Θάνατος) are, respectively, the personifications of sleep and non-violent death; the twin sons of the goddess Nyx, they live in the Underworld, in a place where the rays of the sun and the moon will never touch. Out of the two, Hypnos is said to be the gentler one, although both are ruthless in their own right.
